Everyone has been fuzzing around the rumors of an iPad Mini recently, especially when the market has been heated up by 7-inch tablets. It seems that the rumors are not unreasonable. But if iPad Mini is really released in the end of this year, will it be a wrong move of the giant?
If Apple actually is going to introduce some kind of 7-inch tablet to compete with Google Nexus, it, first of all, is certainly a bad news for developers who will have to write different programs to satisfy the new resolution of iPad Mini.
Is iPad Mini rumor true? And if yes, is it going to be a right move of Apple?
We probably all remember what Steve Jobs said when he first introduced iPad: a device must be better than those currently existing in the market, which explains why everything Apple has offered until now is amazing. But with an iPad Mini, that vision might get confusing. If iPad Mini is coming out, it will mark the first time ever Apple plays the role of a follower, rather than the market leader. Apple always creates trends, and it’s not wrong to state that Apple inspires the best devices we see in the market nowadays. Following the footstep of Google to create just-another-7-inch-tablet is nothing similar to the regularly seen originality of Apple. Apple is way too strong and independent to compete in such a way. They don’t need to gain market share with such types of idea. A smaller version of iPad is not a superiorly bad thing, but it’s nothing special when it comes to an extraordinary entity like Apple.
Some people actually want an iPad Mini, but many others hope it’s no more than a mere rumor. Despite saying so, we can only wait and see what will come in the end of this year.
